We’re going old school in September, and bringing back some of the oldie but goodie podcasts. First up is the Art of Negotiation.
Negotiation is really the most powerful concept that you can learn. Sure, it can be intimidating at first, and you might be really nervous. Once you have a few victories with negotiating, it will become second nature to you. My best advice is to start with something small, like negotiating your phone bill.
Did you know that right now you could probably save 10-30% on your phone bill just by calling the company and negotiating a lower rate? It’s true, I do it at least 2 times a year. You see, companies want your business, and they know when you are negotiating there is a threat that you might go to a different company. This trick works on cable bills, internet bills, even credit card interest rates.
Before you know it you will be negotiating car loans, hotel room discounts and more without even flinching.
